You can also delete previously set cookies at any time. Please note that disabling cookies may result in your use of our website or certain parts of it being restricted.

We may collect information about your computer or device including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type for system administration. This is data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns and may also identify any individuals and be considered Personal Data based on whether it is combined with account data you provide to us.

Google Analytics

Like majority of website operators, we use analytical tools in the form of tracking software to ascertain the number of users using our website and how frequently they visit us.

To enable us to optimise our website and our service, we use Google Analytics, which is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”: these are text files stored on your computer and used to analyse your website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, within member states of the European Union, or in other states that are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area Google first abbreviates your IP address. The full IP address will only be transmitted in exceptional circumstances to one of Google's servers in the USA, where it will then be abbreviated. Google will use this information on behalf of our website operator to analyse your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities for the website operator and to perform other services connected with the use of the website and of the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged or combined with other data by Google. You can prevent cookies from being stored by applying the appropriate settings in your browser software; please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent.

You may also prevent Google from collecting data generated by the cookie referring to your website usage (including your IP address), and from processing these data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data in this website in future (the opt-out only works in this browser, and only for this domain). This stores an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you need to click on this link again.

Links to other websites


This website uses plugins from Youtube.de/Youtube.com which is operated by Youtube, LLC (901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA). If you visit a website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the YouTube servers. These plugins transfer data to the YouTube servers about which websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube attributes this information to each of your personal user accounts on these platforms. When using these plugins (for example, clicking the ‘Play’ button on a video or leaving a comment), this information is attributed to your YouTube user account, which you can prevent by logging out of your account before using the plugin. For more information, please review the privacy policy:
www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

This website uses buttons for the Twitter service which is offered by Twitter Inc. (1355 Market St., Suite 900, San Francisco, CA, 94103, USA). These plugins can be identified by terms such as ‘Twitter’, ‘tweet’ and/or the Twitter logo. They make it possible, among other things, to share a comment or a page of this website via Twitter. When you visit a website which contains such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter button is transferred directly from Twitter to your browser. We therefore have no influence over the scope of the data collected by Twitter via this plugin, and can only provide information on this to you to the best of our knowledge. Log data (for example, the user’s IP address and previously visited websites, etc.) are transferred to Twitter. For more information, please review the Twitter privacy policy: twitter.com/privacy

Plug-ins from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (LinkedIn) are incorporated in this website. The LinkedIn plug-ins are identifiable from the LinkedIn logo or the “Share Button” on this website. If you visit this website, a direct connection will be generated between your browser and the LinkedIn server through the plug-in. In this way, LinkedIn receives information on the fact that you visited this website with your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “Share Button” while you are logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of this web page to your LinkedIn profile. In this way, LinkedIn can allocate the visit to this website to your user account. Please note that we as website operators receive no knowledge of the content of the data transferred or their use by LinkedIn. You can find details on data collection (its purpose, extent, further processing and use) as well as on your rights and the possibility to amend settings in LinkedIn’s privacy policy.
